# compute$\iint_D x^2y+y\sin(x^9) \ dxdy$

Can someone please help me with this integral $$\iint_D x^2y+y\sin(x^9) \ dxdy$$ $$D=\{(x,y):x^2+y^2\leq2,y>0\}$$

I have done like this: $$\int_{x=-\sqrt2}^{\sqrt2}\int_{y=0}^{\sqrt{2-x^2}} x^2y+y\sin(x^9) \ dydx$$ but the answer is wrong why?

Any suggestion would be great Thanks

• What answer did you get? Can you show us how? What answer have you been given?

• Just so you know the integral that you have set up also gives the correct answer. You may have made a mistake. It is not necessary that you have to integrate over $x$ first. Jan 9, 2021 at 13:45

$$x$$ should be integrated over first: $$\int_0^{\sqrt2}y\int_{-\sqrt{2-y^2}}^{\sqrt{2-y^2}}(x^2+\sin x^9)\,dx\,dy$$ Since $$\sin x^9$$ is an odd function and we are integrating over a domain symmetric about its oddness point, its contribution to the integral is zero and we may ignore it: $$=\int_0^{\sqrt2}y\int_{-\sqrt{2-y^2}}^{\sqrt{2-y^2}}x^2\,dx\,dy$$ $$=\int_0^{\sqrt2}y[x^3/3]_{-\sqrt{2-y^2}}^{\sqrt{2-y^2}}\,dy$$ $$=\frac23\int_0^{\sqrt2}y(2-y^2)^{3/2}\,dy$$ $$=-\frac13\int_0^{\sqrt2}-2y(2-y^2)^{3/2}\,dy$$ $$=-\frac13\int_2^0u^{3/2}\,du$$ $$=\frac13\cdot\frac25[u^{5/2}]_0^2$$ $$=\frac{2^{7/2}}{15}$$
The $$y\sin x^9$$ part, being odd in $$x$$, doesn't contribute. Since $$D$$ has polar specification $$0\le r\le\sqrt{2},\,0<\theta<\pi$$, the integral is $$\int_0^\pi\cos^2\theta\sin\theta d\theta\int_0^\sqrt{2}r^4dr$$, which I leave you to evaluate.
• Thank you, does it matter if it was $y\geq0$ instead? Jan 9, 2021 at 12:33
